2021-2022 Junior Winter Golf Academy

 

Genesis Golf is pushing forward for the 2021-2022 winter, to regrow our youth programs and grow the game!  It was the demand for junior development that inspired our creation, so it’s time to refocus once again. What’s super exciting, is that Coach Blake is returning in a bigger way, leading and developing all curriculum. He has been teaching junior golf at multiple facilities since 2015 and has been a part of Genesis since 2016.

Please note, we are not requiring masks this winter, but our class sizes are no more than 4 kids at a time. If your child is sick, we certainly request that you notify us and keep your child home. However, if you want your child in a mask only class, we are open to forming a class, but will need your help in finding other parents to pair up with your child. We are wiling and flexible to adapt to all.

Scheduling, Class Series & More!

In the past, we had to offer very set dates and schedules, knowing Coach Blake needed to transition to the course each spring.  Having Blake here year-round will make a huge difference and provide the opportunity to release classes and enrollments on a more ongoing basis!

Beginner 8-Week Introductory Classes

If you child has no experience, this is a great way to spark a new interest and gain a strong foundation in golf basics and safety.  These classes will be taught in our open classroom using PGA endorsed SNAG equipment.  SNAG equipment is great for those that are learning because they are large, oversized clubs combined with tennis balls, making striking success that much easier.  With our small class sizes, we are able to pay special attention to every student to make sure no one is left behind.  The main goal for us is to discover an interest for the game along with making new friends in a fun environment. This is a good foundation to prepare students for our Winter Academy and for early elementary-aged children.

Sample Class Schedule: this is for non Pee Wee classes, with Pee Wee aged kids we may take more time on the foundations and not get to the full swing

  • Weeks 1-2: Putting

If you child has completed one of our introductory classes or another golf program, this is the next step for them.  The program follows a curriculum established by our Director of Instruction, Blake Testerman.  Students in this academy will utilize the entire facility during their time with us.  We will take the basic knowledge that they have of the game and build on that in every aspect.  They will gain knowledge of the 4 swings used in golf along with basic knowledge of rules and on course etiquette.
